I agree with the others! Many of those are looking like pullets to me.
The first one looks like an araucana mix - maybe with polish? Perhaps the second one is an ee, can't tell. #5 is a cochin. I think #10 is an ee. Not sure on #7... maybe a blue cochin? I really don't know but it's gorgeous!

Ok... heres my guesses...
#1 brown chicken --- GIRL
#2 black/gray chicken --- GIRL
#3 White Chicken ----- BOY
#4 Feather Duster ---- GIRL
#5 White Face Chicken ---- BOY (Wattles)
#6 Salt & Pepper Chicken ---- BOY
#7 Lavender/gray chicken ----- BOY (Wattles)
#8 Large Feather Duster ----- GIRL
#9 Evil looking Feather Duster ---- BOY
#10 Orange Chicken ----- BOY

I am not ver good at this, so you can probably pick all opposites of what I said. They are really pretty birds!! I need some feather dusters..
